What people are saying

Promises don’t put trees and grass in the ground. Promises don’t build ecosystems. Action does. To act with speed and purpose, we need to get the finance flowing.
Inger Andersen, Under-Secretary General, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
Ecosystem restoration is never for its own sake. It is for the sake of everyone.
Mordecai Ogada, Executive Director, Conservation Solutions Afrika
We need to ensure that we put our leaders accountable for the actions that we youth do and ensure that there is as much environmental justice as possible.
Fatou Jeng, Founder, Clean Earth Gambia
